           Summary: alert() in a window.onblur handler confuses tab
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh Intel
               URL: http://james.wheare.org/stuff/bugs/safari/onbluralert.
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.6
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs

* Put an alert() statement in a window.onblur event handler
* Make sure the window is focuses (click in it)


* Switch tabs or create a new tab (either by clicking or with the keyboard shortcut)


* The main view updates to show the tab you switched to
* The selected tab remains on the window you alerted from, and any keyboard shortcuts will go to that tab.

See a minimal test case here:

This may of course be an issue with Safari rather than WebKit, Chrome handles this by switching to the new tab for a split second, then switching back to your onblur tab to show the alert.
